how can cupping help me?

The mechanism of how it works is very simple, yet its effectiveness for musculoskeletal pain and tension can be quite profound.

Myofascial Decompression is a technique that quickly improves muscular and fascial mobility by utilizing principles founded through ancient Chinese cupping, and studies on myofascial trains and connections.

By creating a suction inside glass or plastic cups then placing over areas of tightness or restriction, practitioners can create a lifting mechanism to stretch out tight muscles and unbind adhesions.

How can it help me?   

  • By loosening your muscles.
  • Balancing out muscle tension.
  • Improving your mobility almost instantly
  • Increases blood flow to slow healing muscle, tendon or ligament.
  • Reduce scar tissue formation
  • Release trigger points and decrease tightness in a muscle and the surrounding fascia
  • By alleviating pain and promoting relaxation.
  • Helps with treating cold symptoms.

The great thing about this technique is it is generally safe for all populations and the benefits can be seen and felt within minutes.
